And I'm absolutely loving the yarn I have on my crochet hook right now!
This is the most gorgeous fuchsia yarn with a really pretty sparkle bling in it! Such a pleasure to play with :*) Can you see my little wonder clip there on the bottom right? I've found so many uses for these little clips! It's just perfect for holding my place without losing stitches when I put down the project for a bit.
Here's a close-up shot of the pretty ruffle that is being built on the edges....
There will be one more row of ruffly stitching after this one, and then it will be done. It is a surprisingly quick project! You can see more pictures of what the Swishy Scarf is supposed to look like HERE.
As for actual knitting needles, I finished up my Sugar 'n Cream dishcloth....
Poor little thing is a little whoppy-jawed!!!
And believe me, this picture shows it's best shape LOL!!!
However, I really enjoyed knitting up this little project, and it will work just fine in my kitchen. I'll smile every time I pick it up :*) And since I enjoyed it so much, I went back and picked out a couple of cute pastel colors in the Sugar 'n Cream to make some baby cloths for my son and daughter-in-law who are expecting their first baby next week. Hopefully I'll be able to do a little better with my tension on these :*)
They don't know what the baby will be, so I tried to pick colors that would work for either a boy or girl. The problem is that I'm not really very fond of baby yellow or mint green :*) These colors called out to me, so these are what came home with me! =^..^=
And one last exciting news flash....I'm going to be absent from blogging next week because I'm busy packing up for a week-long retreat in Pigeon Forge! A group of us are going to the Mountain Quiltfest Show and staying in a cabin for the week to sew and play! WhooHoo!! I'm so excited! I'm taking two classes, one from Paula Nadelstern! So look for lots of fun pictures when I return.
Hugs & Blessings!
